What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Is That A Baby In Your Pants Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Kids today, with all their weird hobbies:

(PS - Oh! Hey! Think this is Isabella?)


Ariel's company wanted their vision statement written on a cake, but made the rookie mistake of e-mailing a cellphone photo of their office wall plaque as a reference. [shaking head] Tsk tsk, guys.

The result was predictable, but their vision statement makes it delightfully ironic:

Now if only we could empower technology to transform wreckerators.


One question, oh-so-many answers:

Let's... START... withhow... MUCH... I hear William Shatner... RIGHTNOW.


And finally, that awkward moment when you can't tell if the cake is for a baby shower or a bachelorette party:

For the record: I still don't know.


Thanks to Claudia R., Ariel D., Aubrae W., & Amanda F., who aren't happy to see me, but DO have bowling balls in their pants.

Jen, you are the spoopiest!!! You never cease to give me reasons to make my own cakes! That one in the red shorts won't bulge from my mind!

I just don’t understand why these people who receive photos of the desired cake design insist on putting a piped border around the said photo.

That last one…why can't it be both?

Speaking of which, her anniversary is next week. Thanks for the reminder!

It's got to be a bachelorette party. Right? If that's a pregnant belly, the mom-to-be would be wearing some sort of bizarre onesie; that's definitely a crotch so it must extend to the legs, and if the top isn't a waistband then I don't know what it might be. Wreckerators wouldn't put the mom-to-be in a bizarre onesie, would they?

Would they?

That picture of the little girl in front of the fire is perfect - and kind of spooky. And is that supposed to be the Berenstain Bears' house on fire? Because that's all I'm seeing.

That last one sent me into hysterics. I think it will be the stuff of nightmares now but I can't stop laughing at it lol.
